Meet the Board of Governors

The PCF Board of Governors is composed of three physicians, two dentist, two hospital representatives, two insurance representatives, two attorneys and two representatives of the general public, all appointed by the Governor. The appointed members serve a term of six years. The Board develops a Plan of Operations for efficient administration of the Fund, consistent with the provisions of the Plan of Operations and Article 5 of the enabling legislation.

The Board is continually engaged in extensive strategic planning throughout the fiscal year, which includes the continual review and revision of the PCF Plan of Operations, Underwriting Manual of Rules & Rates and claims handling procedures. The Board has reviewed and is considering legislative changes, which will allow for the more efficient operation and management of the Fund. The Plan of Operations details procedural information that provides for economic, fair and nondiscriminatory administration and for prompt and efficient provisions of excess medical malpractice insurance. The Plan contains other provisions including, but not limited to, assessment of all members for expenses, deficits, losses, reasonable underwriting standards, acceptance and cession of the reinsurance, appointment of servicing carriers and procedures for determining the amounts of insurance to be provided by the Fund. The Plan of Operations and any amendments to the Plan are subject to the approval of the Board.

The Board has authorized the revision of the membership agreement and the development of applications to better serve its members. The Board continues to allow its members to pay their annual membership fee on a quarterly basis, with a small administrative fee.
